Warren Local Schools
On May 2, 2017 the Warren Local School District community approved a 4.76 mills bond issue and permanent improvement levy. The bond issue will raise $23 million in local funds while the permanent improvement levy will raise 0.5 mills of permanent improvement dollars per year.
The project is co-funded through the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC), who is adding in $38 million for the project. As this is a joint project, the district will be working with the OFCC to implement the district improvements through the Classroom Facilities Assistance Program (CFAP).

Warrior Nation’s investment will transform the district and the community by:
- Building a new high school including a gymnasium and updating the current gymnasium and auditorium building (Building 6);
- Building a kindergarten through fourth grade elementary school building;
- Adding more than 20,000 additional square feet at the middle school;
- Making improvements to the grounds of the consolidated school campus.
The purpose of project is to improve our infrastructure to support our academic goals and create a modern learning campus of which our Warrior community can be proud. The planning, design, and execution are concentrated on three primary project objectives:
- Provide increased educational opportunities for all students through the consolidation of resources to a single campus.
- Increase operational efficiency by reducing the total number of school buildings supported by the district.
- Minimize the impact of the changes for the community affected by the consolidation.
